Freeze Breath is an innate mutation possessed by Rimewyk.pngrimewyks. It functions similarly to Freezing ray mutation.pngFreezing Ray, but with a much longer range and longer cooldown. Unlike Ice Breath (the innate mutation of Sleetbeard.pngsleetbeards), Freeze Breath does not provide cold resistance.

Hitting a creature with the ray of frost deals cold damage and forces a temperature change dependent on the mutation level. When compared to Freezing Ray, Freeze Breath has far less of a base temperature change, but a far greater level-based temperature change.

Creatures with this mutation cannot wear face equipment, and they gain the Icy vapor.pngicy vapor natural equipment in their first face slot.[1] However, rimewyks typically have \icy jaws natural equipment permanently equipped in their first face slot, so they do not appear to gain icy vapor under normal circumstances. Creatures with icy vapor will also decrease their target's temperature when making melee attacks; the attack can be made by any limb (even those wielding weapons) and does not need to penetrate for this temperature change to occur.

Having this mutation sets the creature's brittle temperature to a value dependent on the level of the mutation. Note that it is set to this value rather than being reduced by it, regardless of other factors.

Formulas

The following formulas are used to determine damage[2], temperature change[3], melee temperature change[4], and brittle temperature[4] based on mutation level.

Damage
(Level)d4 + 1 + Number of Additional Face Slots
Temperature Change
-20° - (60° × Level)
Melee Temperature Change
-(Level)d4°
Brittle Temperature
-600° + (-300° × Level)

Ability Cooldown

Freeze Breath's cooldown (CD) in rounds depends on the user's willpower (WI) attribute:
